Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

the matriarch...

the matriarch
taken with the iPad

This is the matriarch of our three cats.
Willow is approximately 16 years old...
still sound of mind, good eyesight,
decent hearing, but has a bit
of trouble chewing.

My nickname for Willow is Smudge...
see that dark spot beside her nose?

She can keep up with the boys,
Zembie and Kokomo, and helps
keep them on the straight and narrow.
Even when my wife and I cuddle up,
if Willow is in the room,
she keeps us on the straight and narrow too,
by jumping up on our laps and pushing
her face into ours.

"With the qualities of cleanliness,
affection, patience, dignity,
and courage that cats have,
how many of us, I ask you,
would be capable of becoming cats?"

- Fernand Mery
